Putting in your time
While many of our club owners enjoy the flexibility to pursue other passions, any new business requires a significant time commitment. So be realistic in assessing your availability for launching your new club as well as day-to-day operations. Of course, we’re here to help with everything from site selection to operations with 360° Support.
More clubs, more opportunity
Many of our owners enjoy the added earnings potential of owning more than one club. We offer discounts on franchise fees for additional clubs to help our owners dream big.
Of course, every business owner hopes to earn a profit. But financials aside, the things we hear Anytime Fitness owners rave about are the rewards of a healthier lifestyle – for their members and themselves. After all, if you truly love your work you’re bound to enjoy a more passionate, fulfilling life.
